Sandcastle Adds Dragon’s Den to Ride Roster

West Homestead, PA, USA (April 4, 2012) /PRWEB/ —  Dragon’s Den is the biggest addition to Sandcastle Waterpark in nearly ten years. “We want to try to keep things fun and exciting for our guests,” says Sandcastle’s General Manager Damian Dondero. “This has been a few years in the making and we are excited to add a waterslide that is completely different than any other experience we currently have at Sandcastle.”

Dragon’s Den will offer guests maximum thrills as they catapult through a dark and mysterious 45 foot tunnel slide, which then plummets them into a 35 foot bowl where they encounter a 9 foot tall dragon that spits mist at its riders. After completing 2-4 revolutions in the mist-shrouded abyss, guests will suddenly disappear from sight, splashing down in a landing pool.

Located adjacent to the Mon Tsunami Wave Pool and behind the Snack Shack, Dragon’s Den is a two- person tube slide. Riders must be 48 inches or taller to ride. The slide is manufactured by ProSlide Technology Inc. Construction on the Dragon’s Den is expected to be finished in time for opening day of the 2012 season.

Sandcastle is open daily June 9 through August 19. Sandcastle is also open the weekends of May 26-28, June 2-3, Aug 25-26 and Sept 1-3.  Visit for more information.

Sandcastle is part of the Palace Entertainment family of parks. Palace Entertainment owns and operates 40 theme parks, waters parks and family entertainment centers nationwide, including Kennywood and Idlewild. Palace entertains millions of guests annually and is one of the largest park operators in the nation.
